Charlotte Hornets Betting

The Charlotte Hornets now has a record of 25-24 and sits at the fifth-best record in NBA Eastern Conference. This team has been trying to stay afloat with the injury of Gordon Hayward and LaMelo Ball. They are now trailed by the Miami Heat and a loss here would risk their current playoff position. The Boston Celtics were their recent opponents and lost by a wide margin of 30 points, 86-116. Terry Rozier tried to lift his team doing 22 points, seven rebounds and four assists. Only two players reached double-digit scoring with Devonte Graham having 11 and Miles Bridges having 10.

Oklahoma City Thunder Betting

The Oklahoma City Thunder have lost their last three games and dropped six of their last seven matches. Their record is now at 20-30 and they are probably looking forward to making a good position at the NBA lottery. The NBA Eastern Conference’s worst team Detroit Pistons were their most recent opponents and lost that match by 24 points. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander did not play while Al Horford is sitting out the rest of the season. Lou Dort and Darius Bazley are all nursing injuries as well. This team had production from unusual places like Aleksej Pokusevski doing 19 points.
